Our Special Project this year is renovating the Staff Lounge.
Other than an occasional fresh coat of paint and the addition of "new to the lounge" furniture, the lounge has not been renovated since the school opened almost 20 years ago.
HAPPY STAFF = HAPPY STUDENTS. TEACHERS WHO HAVE THE TOOLS THEY NEED AND A SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT HAVE MORE TIME TO FOCUS ON THEIR STUDENTS.
